BRIDGEPORT, W.Va. – Former Mountaineer great, Juwan Staten, helped lead and coach at the Big Shots Top 150 camp in Bridgeport over the weekend.
The two-time all-Big 12 guard was already familiar with a couple of the players prior to Sunday, and that includes Morgantown sophomore guard, Sharron Young, who works out individually with Staten.
I caught up with both Young and Staten on Sunday about working together this summer.
“It’s been a fun experience. He shows me a lot of stuff that I can add to my game that he did. He just helps me improving my game. It’s a really cool experience to be able to play with a WVU all-timer,” said Young.
“I like his skill level. I think he’s a smart player, and I think he has a lot of potential,” Staten said. “I want to be that guy that I feel like I didn’t really have growing up, as far as someone that has been there, that could help me out. So, when I see guys that I can identify that have that kind of talent, I want to try to be a difference maker. I definitely think he has a bright future.”
It certainly speaks volumes to the type of player that Young is already, and could become, that Staten is taking an interest in him.
